Hadik Irodalmi Szalon
“Every single month, since its founding in 2010, the capitol’s most visited literature studio, the Hadik Irodalmi Szalon proves again and again, that arts, literature and culture is an important meeting point with a message for all generations in the 21th century.
Regarding our motto – Literature is ideology – we present special performances and artists around us, with a main focus on literature of course. Due to hard work and the growing popularity of Hadik Irodalmi Szalon, we have outgrown the capacity of the former Hadik Coffee House, resulting that we had to organize our birthday event in last November on a different location, the Petőfi Literature Museum and the single most visited literature event of 2016 in Budapest at Várkert Bazár – in front of nearly 700 guests. This level of attendance can only be maintained with diverse topics, a continuous presence in media and other online forums and of course with the fact that culture, literature and arts are home base for us, where we invite the guests to share. This year we had a great number of guests arriving from all around the country, showing us, that the Hadik Irodalmi Szalon is becoming well-known not only in Budapest, but the whole country.”

Nominated by Orsolya Strasser:
“The Salon intends to evoke the former cultural effervescence of Hadik Café, within and also outside the Café’s walls. During the past year it has organized at least a dozen literary events enriching the cultural scene of Budapest, where the audience could get acquainted with contemporary writers and poets, and with ones by now considered classical. It provides permanent space for co-artists for collaboration, this way literature can be combined not only with music but also e.g. with gastronomy, thus extending the circle of those potentially interested, that is very useful for the domestic literary scene.”
